Lost your ADMIN$ share, and need it for remote NT administration? This has happened to several readers. Some of them have even tried to resort to snAppShotting the reinstallation of this share, to no avail. Not to worry. Here's the skinny.

The creation of this share occurs automatically in NT. If it's not being created, it's because you have inadvertently chosen one registry setting that prevents this from being created. To get it back, look under Windows NT Network Shares, and you'll find Create hidden drive shares. Make sure this is set to Enabled, and you're home free.
